Course Expectations

  • AP Computer Science

    AP Computer Science A course is an introductory course in computer science. Because the design and implementation of computer programs to solve problems involve skills that are fundamental to the study of computer science, a large part of the course is built around the development of computer programs that correctly solve a given problem. These programs should be understandable, adaptable, and, when appropriate, reusable. At the same time, the design and implementation of computer programs is used as a context for introducing other important aspects of computer science, including the development and analysis of algorithms, the development and use of fundamental data structures, the study of standard algorithms and typical applications, and the use of logic and formal methods. In addition, the responsible use of these systems is an integral part of the course. Students will be prepared for and expected to take the AP Computer Science A examination.

  • Pre-AP Computer Science

    Welcome to “Pre-AP Computer Science!” This is a one semester introductory course in programming in which students learn to develop computer programs to solve problems. The Pre-AP Computer Science course is an introductory course in computer science. The major theme of the course is problem solving. The goals of the Pre-AP Computer Science course are comparable to those in the introductory course for computer science majors offered in many college and university computer science departments. It is not expected that all students in the Pre-AP Computer Science course will major in computer science at the university level. The Pre-AP Computer Science course is intended to serve both as an introductory course for computer science majors and as a course for people who will major in other disciplines and want to be informed citizens in today’s technological society.

  • Civil/Architectural Engineering

    Welcome to the “Civil Engineering & Architecture” Course! Civil Engineering and Architecture is the study of the design and construction of residential and commercial building projects. The course includes an introduction to many of the varied factors involved in building design and construction including building components and systems, structural design, storm water management, site design, utilities and services, cost estimation, energy efficiency, and careers in the design and construction industry. The major focus of the CEA course is to expose students to the design and construction of residential and commercial building projects, design teams and teamwork, communication methods, engineering standards, and technical documentation. Utilizing the activity-project-problem-based (APPB) teaching and learning pedagogy, students will analyze, design and build electronic and physical models of residential and commercial facilities. While implementing these designs students will continually hone their interpersonal skills, creative abilities and understanding of the design process. Civil Engineering and Architecture is a high school level course that is appropriate for 11th or 12th grade students interested in careers related to civil engineering and architecture. Other than their concurrent enrollment in college preparatory mathematics and science courses and have successfully completed the Principles of Engineering (POE) and Intro to Engineering Design courses. Civil Engineering and Architecture is one of four specialization courses in the Project Lead The Way® high school pre-engineering program. The course applies and concurrently develops secondary level knowledge and skills in mathematics, science, and technology.

  • Aerospace Engineering

    Welcome to the “Aerospace Engineering” Course! Aerospace Engineering TM (AE) is the study of the engineering discipline which develops new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems, and space exploration. The course explores the evolution of flight, flight fundamentals, navigation and control, aerospace materials, propulsion, space travel, orbital mechanics, ergonomics, remotely operated systems and related careers. In addition the course presents alternative applications for aerospace engineering concepts. Utilizing the activity-project-problem-based (APPB) teaching and learning pedagogy, students will analyze, design, and build aerospace systems. While implementing these designs, students will continually hone their interpersonal skills, creativity, and application of the design process. Students apply knowledge gained throughout the course in a final multi-media project to envision their future professional accomplishments. Aerospace Engineering is a high school level course that is appropriate for 10th, 11th, or 12th grade students interested in Aerospace. It is recommended that students are concurrently enrolled in college preparatory mathematics and science courses and have successfully completed the Principles of Engineering (POE) course. AE is one of the specialization courses in the Project Lead The Way high school engineering program. The course applies and concurrently develops secondary-level knowledge and skills in mathematics, science, and technology
